Phillies Vs. Mets Game 3 Lineup: Philly Going With Similar Game 2 Lineup

The Philadelphia Phillies are looking to help get starting pitcher Cliff Lee his first win of the season. The lineup they are trotting out is exactly the same as the Phillies had on Tuesday night with the exception of inserting Mike Fontenot at second base over Freddy Galvis. Last night Galvis went 0-for-4 from the plate which could explain him sitting out Wednesday's game.

The Mets on the other hand did some shuffling due to Lee being a lefty. The first change was routine with first baseman Ike Davis taking the night off and being replaced by Vinny Rottino. The Mets also switched their top two spots in the batting order and placed Andres Torres at the lead off spot and Daniel Murphy will be batting second.

Phillies lineup:

1. Jimmy Rollins SS
2. Juan Pierre LF
3. Hunter Pence RF
4. Ty Wigginton 1B
5. Shane Victorino CF
6. Placido Polanco 3B
7. Mike Fontenot 2B
8. Brian Schneider C
9. Cliff Lee P

Mets lineup:

1. Andres Torres CF
2. Daniel Murphy 2B
3. David Wright 3B
4. Scott Hairston LF
5. Vinny Rottino 1B
6. Lucas Duda RF
7. Rob Johnson C
8. Omar Quintanilla SS
9. Dillon Gee P
